Super Mario Run: Nintendo to release its first-ever mobile game today
Nintendo is sprinting into a new era with the launch of Super Mario Run. The beloved '80s character debuts on Apple devices for the first time Thursday with the launch of Nintendo's much-anticipated mobile game. Mario's mission is to rescue a kidnapped Princess Peach from bad guy Bowser. Along the way, users run into familiar challenges, like piranha plants peeking out of green tubes and coins in treacherous spots. But rather than using a controller, users tap the screen to jump over enemies. By keeping a finger to the screen for a longer period of time, Mario jumps higher.
